Lyrics

I wake up in the morning
My first thoughts are of you
I know you won’t be calling
And there's nothing I can do
So I just keep on walking
Down this lonely avenue
Telling myself stories
Anything to get me through

We had a drink or two last night
My words kept slipping away
So I let my fingers do the talking
I guess I had a lot to say
Now I'm writing you a novel
Don't know how it's gonna end
I try to save a little face now
And hit Delete instead of Send

Girl, it’s you
Tell me what to do
You know it’s true
I can’t get over you

Like a fool I sit here waiting
For something in return
All of this anticipating
Nothing happens, lesson learned
I've got to stop this reckless writing
Before I lose you as a friend
A hundred times I read this message
And hit Delete instead of Send

Girl, it’s you
Tell me what to do
You know it’s true
I can’t get over you

I lay myself down in the evening
Trying not to think of you
‘Cause I know you won't be calling
In spite of everything I do
And I write a final message
Telling you I'm giving in
I’m sure we'll both be glad it's over
I won't Delete, I'll just hit Send.
